Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I have two unrelated friends who were each diagnosed with Bell's palsy (AKA idiopathic facial paralysis).

One of my friends had received a prescription of prednisone, yet her symptoms, a drooping lip and an eyelid that would not completely close, stayed the same. So here is the essential oil protocol that she started using:

* She put one drop of Peppermint essential oil in a gallon of water, and she drank one cup daily.

* She applied one drop of Peppermint oil to her scalp and rubbed it into her hair and scalp and on the sides of her face closest to her ears.

* She diffused Peppermint oil in the air.

* She inhaled Peppermint oil through hand cupping each day.

* She applied the Thieves essential oil blend daily to the bottom of her feet.

* She diluted Thieves blend and applied it over her thymus gland to help rebuild her immune system.

* She took Super B daily.

* She took Super C daily.

Within two weeks, her face was no longer drooping, and her eyelid was able to close over her eye again.

My other friend had suffered with Bell's palsy for 18 months before he decided to try essential oil products. In March 2014 he started using the same regimen as my other friend was using. By the end of September 2014 his face was not swollen or drooping anymore.

Both of my friends are now happily using essential oils as part of their new healthy lifestyle.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
2.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
3.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Topical high-concentration L-menthol is the only established human experimental pain model to study mechanisms underlying cold hyperalgesia. We aimed at investigating the combinatorial effect of cold stimuli and topical L-menthol on cold pain and secondary mechanical hyperalgesia. Cold detection threshold and cold pain threshold (CPT) increased after L-menthol and remained high after the cold rekindling cycles.... Skin blood flow increased after L-menthol and stayed stable after cold cycles. Repeated application of cold on skin treated by L-menthol facilitated and prolonged L-menthol-induced cold pain and hyperalgesia."Link
4.Associated topics: bell's-palsy — "In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis."Link
